Bring your cars and hot rods and join us for a car show to benefit Wishes on Wheels! No pre-registration required, just cruise on over and join the fun.
Wishes on Wheels, Inc. is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization made up of passionate and hardworking volunteers committed to a shared goal – to organize a family-friendly truck convoy and event to bring together families, friends, and community members to support children with life-threatening medical conditions. Dozens of local Wish Kids look forward to Wishes On Wheels as an annual tradition that simply can’t be missed. Many of the truck drivers volunteer to have Wish Families ride along with them during the Convoy. When the Wish Kids arrive, they carefully select the truck they will ride shotgun in during the Convoy or search until they find “their truck” from the previous year. Upon return to Rentschler Field in East Hartford, there is more fun, food, and festivities to help raise money for this important cause.
To date, Wishes on Wheels has donated $1,820,000 to Make-a-Wish Connecticut and our 2019 Convoy hosted 671 trucks!
